Daniel Druckman Fellowship

The Schar School of Policy and Government is pleased to offer the Daniel Druckman Fellowship Stipend to eligible master’s and doctoral students admitted to a Schar degree program. This stipend may be used for independent research, dissertation or thesis support under one or more of the following themes: international affairs with an emphasis on inter- and intra-national conflicts (including civil wars), international conflict resolution, analyses of negotiation and mediation, political psychology in international relations (including the study of issues of justice), and peace studies with a focus on peacekeeping or peacebuilding.

The Daniel Druckman Fellowship Stipend is available due to the generous financial support of Daniel Druckman, Schar School Professor Emeritus.
